"Your music is really beautiful!"
How did I react?
"Oh, thank you!"
How did I feel?
Today I received a compliment! I had been busking at Gesundbrunnen for hours when a little boy came running. He planted himself in front of me and looked at me sharply. A few bars later I realized he really needed to tell me something. I interrupted my playing, and said:
Him: "Hi! Your music is really beautiful!"
Me: "Oh thank you! That is very sweet of you!"
Him: "Do you live here?"
Me: "Here? In the station?"
Him: "No. I mean, do you own a house?"
Me: "Do I own a house?"
Me: "Oh, am I homeless!? Ah, I get it." I laughed. "No, I mean, yeah, I live in an apartment. You are sweet but no worries. What's your name?"
Me: "Hi Philip! I am Rosa. Nice to meet you."
Him: "Someone just fainted back there!"
Me: "Oh, really?"
Him: "Yeah! A guy, actually he fainted in the SBahn, The paramedics are with him now."
Him: "Happy christmas! No, merry new year, no, wait, I mean, merry christmas and a happy new year!"
Me: "Merry christmas Philip! Take care!"
This was my favorite interaction all day.
